Zephyr (band)


Zephyr (band)

Zephyr was a blues-based hard rock band formed in 1968 in Boulder, Colorado by guitarist Tommy Bolin, keyboardist John Faris, David Givens on bass guitar, Robbie Chamberlain on drums and Candy Givens on vocals. Although the Janis Joplin vocal stylings of Candy Givens was originally the focal point for the band, it was the flashy guitar work of Tommy Bolin that the band is best remembered for. [ [http://www.classicwebs.com/zephyr.htm Zephyr] , www.classicwebs.com, (accessed 22 January,2007] After Bolin left to form Energy, he was replaced by Jock Bartley, however the initial impetus of the band was lost and the group soon disbanded.
